In this August 20 daily horoscope, Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, the founder of My Life Created, shares the astrological events happening today that will affect every zodiac sign. Below, here's a look at how astrology will affect our lives today.
The Moon continues her stay in dedicated and thoughtful Virgo, which can help us with knocking out our to-do list and responsibilities for the day. With the Moon teaming up with multiple planets in hardworking Capricorn throughout the day, we get the extra oomph we need to follow through on projects and goals. Since Virgo and Capricorn are signs that often seek to help and support others, we're also encouraged to use the day to do what we can to help those in need.
However, we may need to watch out for some crankiness or frustration as the Moon in Virgo brushes up against aggressive Mars in Aries in the late afternoon. The best way to harness this energy is by applying it toward something productive. With dreamy Neptune in Pisces also in the mix this afternoon and opposing the Moon in Virgo, we're also encouraged to take a break as needed.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your zodiac sign today, and make sure to check out your August 2020 monthly horoscope.
